I have been searching for info on Big Endian v. Little Endian, but the information I have found so far has has mostly been pretty vague.
I know with big endian a single byte will have 8 bits from right to left (high to low) and little endian has 8 bits from left to right (low to high) in a single byte.
But does this extend to multiple bytes as wel? As in, will 5 big endian bytes go from right to left and 5 little endian bytes go from left to right the same as the previous example?
Or am I looking at this principle completely the wrong way?
